#CompassClient: Investment advisory company ECA uses Compass to maximize its services

Efficiency Capital Advisors K.K. is a privately held investment advisory firm. Together with ECA’s group companies in New York, the company has more than 16 years experience in Japan, and over 23 years in New York. 
 
The company is 100% focused on Japan investors and New York real estate, and provides a full suite of end-to-end services for corporations and wealthy individuals. This includes Investment Advisory services, Recourse & Non-Recourse Financing, Asset and Property Management over the full life of the investment, Project Management, and Brokerage services for the exit.
 
“We are extremely busy, working at capacity, and we need to focus our efforts entirely on our clients,” said Scott Prina, Managing Director at ECA Japan.  “On the support side, we require enterprise-grade networking services, bilingual secretarial services, and high-quality office facilities.  A central Tokyo location is a hard requirement for our clients and employees.”
 
The company chose to relocate its office to Compass Offices in Kamiyacho.  As Prina explains, “Compass Offices has allowed us to outsource these critical, but generic business infrastructure and service functions. This has contributed to our focus and success, and it is consistent with our priority on efficiency.”
 
“Compass has provided everything that we needed at a fair and reasonable price. The management and staff are very competent and have a great attitude, and that has made most days here a pleasure.  I would recommend the company and its services without reservation,” added Prina.
 
ECA’s local New York team has completed more than US $2,000,000,000 worth of direct transactions in Manhattan commercial real estate.The company represents select investors in Japan and provides the expertise required to help their clients achieve their investment and commercial real estate objectives in New York.The minimum investment transaction size is US $10,000,000.
